Reynaers Group’s acquisition of Forster Profilsysteme from Arbonia Group


Reynaers Group entered into an agreement regarding the acquisition of the business unit Forster Profilsysteme from Arbonia Group.

Forster Profilsysteme is the Swiss developer and producer of high-quality steel and stainless steel profile systems for doors, windows and facades.

The acquisition is the result of a strategic decision to strengthen both Reynaers and Forster, and reinforces their leading positions in the construction market for both aluminium and steel solutions.

Forster Profilsysteme and Reynaers Aluminium will continue to operate independently – supplying products and services within their individual markets – as two separate companies under the Reynaers Group umbrella.

Lenz & Staehelin advised Reynaers Group in this transaction with a team led by Andreas Rötheli (picture) and included Mona Stephenson and Ralph Kaufmann (Corporate and M&A) as well as partner Benoît Merkt (Competition).
